Set on beautiful grounds on the edge of the city, Annesley Junior School is a caringcommunity where every child is cherished for their individuality. What families most love about Annesley is that it's a school where children can genuinely feel at home, and where values are lived out everyday.
Annesley Junior School caters for boys and girls from two years of age to Year 6. Annesley children engage in a rigorous program with a focus on leadership, serviceand community sustainability. We offer flexibility as to when your child commences in our Early Learning Centre and we have multiple intakes into our Reception classes, recognising that children are ready to start school at different times. Children are also welcome to join us in other year levels.
At Annesley, our children enjoy an expansive outdoor space with lushgreen lawns inwhich to learn and play, and their inside learning environment was purpose-built for young children. Our school is mid-fee and is open 49 weeks of the year. The Early Learning Centre, Before and After School and Vacation Care programs are accredited, enabling families to access the child-care benefit and rebate for these services.
Annesley has ten core values, which form the basis of how our teachers and students interact: resilience, responsibility, humility, civility, justice, compassion, respect, gratitude courage and integrity. When our Annesley children grow and enter the wider world these values serve them well, allowing them to appreciate the differences – religious, cultural or otherwise – of those they encounter, and to flourish as true global citizens. Annesley’s values are implicitly and explicitly taught through role modelling, trans-disciplinary units, discussion, questioning and guided reflection.
Our children benefit from the rich history of a distinguished educational institution founded by the Uniting Church in 1902. Community events are held in what is the historic heart of the school, Gillingham Hall, a grand structure built in the 1920s. Here a sense of tradition is most tangible. The school is a ten-minute walk from the CBD or a three-minute walk to the tram stop, which many parents working in the city find very helpful. Annesley’s close proximity to the tramline also means classes frequently travel into the city for excursions to extend their learning.
Annesley Junior School is a vibrant place of learning. Our students are well prepared to be active, responsible and ethical citizens of our global world.
